message from the dean

With great pride and a deep sense of responsibility, we continue the 450-year old Jesuit tradition in education and vision of the Creighton family. The value of a Creighton education lies in our Catholic and Jesuit identity and mission – to educate the whole person and leave the world a better place. We don’t just say we’re a Jesuit University, we live it.

I’m sure you remember the outstanding faculty from your days at Creighton. I am proud to tell you that the strength of our faculty has never been better. Our faculty members are known for their commitment to teaching and groundbreaking, influential research. We are also continuing to develop innovative multi-disciplinary programs and serve our communities as men and women for others.

We are committed to creating and sustaining meaningful relationships with each and every alumnus or alumna of this college. Our new website is designed to bring you the latest college developments in teaching, learning, research, and service. We are also eager to connect with you on into social media with our presence on Twitter and Facebook.

I can’t thank you enough for the time and resources you give to the College of Arts and Sciences. Your support for current students, faculty, and college programs allow us to sustain foundational programs and invest in pioneering programs, and support innovative pedagogies and cutting-edge research. We are grateful for your generosity, which helps the College thrive.
